I thought that this was the best way to go then and the reaction I got made me unsure. I'm afraid that trying to go the subtle route of suggesting a website comes off wrong. Maybe an actual conversation with give and take would work better and be more successful. I also don't know if the fact that I was a Junior in Undergrad last year made what I had to say come off worse or if being accepted to T14's at this point makes it seem more like I'm being a dick.


To paraphrase romo: without the clout of being an actual law student you will pretty much come off as a jerk no matter what.

Which is my real problem and the correct answer to my question.
